Is Coffee Healthy or Unhealthy? 5 Diets Reviewed
One commonly asked question about flavored coffees is whether they are compliant with certain lifestyles and diets. Is coffee healthy or unhealthy? We’re here to help clarify that question for you!
Whether you’re keto, paleo, vegan, whole 30, or gluten-free, there are ﬂavored coﬀee options for everyone! Here’s what you should look for when choosing a coﬀee ﬂavoring, depending on your diet.
If you’re following a keto diet, you’re looking for high fat and low sugar. This makes black coﬀee with unsweetened cream a perfect choice but makes ﬁnding sweeter ﬂavored coﬀees more diﬃcult. However, there are a few ﬂavors that are in line with the keto lifestyle!
When looking for ﬂavorings, look for sugarless syrups or coﬀee blends. Salted caramel or dark chocolate is often the perfect ﬂavorings for keto followers. Aim to enjoy these in moderation, however.
Excited to try a keto-approved coﬀee? We recommend our Bavarian Chocolate Coﬀee or Salted Caramel Flavor Shots.
So many sweeteners and coﬀee ﬂavors are made from gluten-containing alcohol-based, making it diﬃcult to ﬁnd a ﬂavored coﬀee that works for the paleo lifestyle. However, many natural, paleo-friendly sweeteners and ﬂavorings exist!
Flavors like vanilla, cacao, cinnamon, and nutmeg are all compliant with the diet, as well as natural sweeteners like maple syrup, raw honey, raw coconut sugar, and date sugar.
Want to keep making ﬂavored coﬀee simple in the morning? We recommend our Canadian Maple Coﬀee or French Vanilla Coﬀee.
Finding ﬂavored coﬀee while on a gluten-free diet can be daunting at times. Many ﬂavorings are made with an alcohol base, which may also contain gluten. Also, some coﬀee grounds could be subject to gluten contamination if packaged in factories with other products containing gluten.
Whole bean coﬀee with naturally sourced ﬂavoring.
We recommend trying out our Wholesale Hazelnut Vanilla Coﬀee and Wholesale Canadian Maple Coﬀee.
Enjoying ﬂavored coﬀee can be diﬃcult when following a vegan diet since many coﬀee ﬂavorings and creamers contain animal by-products. However, we believe that there is a ﬂavored coﬀee for everyone!
The goal is to look for plant-based natural ﬂavorings in your ﬂavored syrups and coﬀee.
Many of Zavida’s coﬀee blends ﬁt this criterion! We recommend trying out our Coconut Delight Coﬀee or Amaretto Almond Coﬀee.
Whole 30 Coffee
It can be diﬃcult to avoid sugars and grains when trying to ﬁnd ﬂavored coﬀees on the Whole 30 lifestyle, but there are still plenty of options to choose from! All-natural ﬂavors like vanilla bean powder, pumpkin spice, raw cacao, cinnamon, and nutmeg are all compliant with the Whole 30 diet.
It’s recommended that Whole 30 followers switch to whole bean coﬀee to ensure that the coﬀee remains compliant with the diet and doesn’t lose any of its natural beneﬁts.
We recommend trying our Pumpkin Spice Coffee or our Apple Pie Coﬀee!
There’s a coﬀee blend for everyone at Zavida! From vegan options to paleo options, we want to ﬁt into every lifestyle.
